“This is my dad. He also known as ‘Papa’ to his 13 grandkids.
This weekend, Papa officiated the wedding of his first grandchild to get married. My dad is a minister. This may cause many to assume things about him based on negative experiences with church, God, and all things spiritual, but my dad is an exceptional example.
He has served in ministry for more than 40 years and I can attest that he doesn’t just practice what he preaches, he embodies what he teaches. He is a great example of a humble, kind servant.
He is selfless, loving, and tender. He is also bold, intelligent and strong!
I am 46 years old and I know no greater hero than my dad.”
